The Poinsettia is a champagne cocktail, which makes it ideal for holiday parties. It’s light on the alcohol, easy to drink (even for very occasional drinkers) and festive.
It’s also a wonderful brunch drink, and the cranberry gives it a nice touch of autumn flavors for fall and winter.
- 1/2 ounce Cointreau
- 3 ounces cranberry juice
Put the Cointreau and cranberry juice in a chilled. Stir them and top the rest of the way with champagne.
To make it a little harder, add an ounce of vodka or tequila.
To avoid alcohol altogether, replace the champagne with ginger ale.
